The Tom Weir Statue Campaign that launched in February 2012, has successfully raised around £50,000 for a bespoke sculpture of the late Scottish climber and much loved TV presenter.
The statue was unveiled on December 29 2014, the centenary of Tom’s birth, following agreed planning permission from the National Park. Fundraising will continue for the upkeep of the surrounding area, donations can be made below.
For those that are too young to remember, Tom was best known for his long-running STV show Weir’s Way, as well as his trademark woolly red hat and fair-isle jumper. He was also an active campaigner for the protection of the Scottish environment and the first recipient of the John Muir Award for Lifetime Achievement.
Tom passed away in July, 2006 and is buried in the grounds of Kilmaronock Parish Church, near Drymen.
